SHARE Nick Kroll fans can get sneak peek at his new film

Chicago folks who can’t wait until Friday to see Nick Kroll in his new film, “Adult Beginners,” can jump the gun and go to a special early screening. It all takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport.

While that’s only one day early, here’s the big attraction: Kroll himself will be on hand for a post-screening Q&A with the audience. So, if you’re a big Kroll groupie, this would be the time to view his new movie.

Kroll, who dreamed up the concept for the film, stars as a hot-shot, full-of-himself New York entrepreneur who moves in with his married sister (played by Rose Byrne) and her husband (Bobby Cannavale) in the suburbs after his business fails and he goes broke. Kroll’s character makes ends meet by becoming a “manny” to his young nephew.
